Rachel Krueger v. Bernadine Hoover and American Family Mutual Insurance Company

Defense counsel’s summary of the facts: This case arose out of a motor vehicle accident where plaintiff was rear ended by Hoover. Plaintiff was pushed into the car in front of her. She did not complain of any injury at the scene but later that day she sought treatment at an Urgent Care clinic. Plaintiff did not personally make a claim against American Family but retained her lawyer shortly after the accident. Plaintiff claimed that she hit her head on the rear window of her pick up truck and jammed her knees in the accident. Plaintiff had a prior history of both knee and neck pain but argued the accident aggravated a pre-existing condition. Plaintiff incurred over $4,261 in health care expenses. The defense expert opined that six weeks of treatment was necessary for any injuries sustained in the accident. The jury deliberated for about an hour and awarded $600 in past healthcare expenses and $400 in past pain, suffering and disability.
